Life Drawing- 10 Second Sketches and Shading

Today we practiced our tonal study once more, for the last 30 minutes of our lesson, only this time with Jackie.

At the start, we did our normal warm up of fast 60 second sketches before Michael threw a curve ball. 10 second sketches. You heard me. 10 seconds each.  Literally some of mine were stick women- though I think I still managed to capture the movement well. It actually helped me in a way- I found it easier to place each movement quicker so I could add more detail, and even get to the facial features, in the next lot of sketches. After this we did our tonal study- although I messed up with the head position, I think I’m getting better at making the image stand out more, especially in the stomach area.
